Ruby (The Twelve Horizons of Charlie #2) by Melody Anne
Charlie Diamond left us wanting more at the end of her first book, Diamond. She’s back in this second installment of The Twelve Horizons of Charlie. We start the book with Charlie standing on the courthouse steps with questions being thrown at her. She doesn’t hesitate to answer, and the crowd only wants more.
We once again dive into the past as Charlie heads to Las Vegas as a new woman, Charlie Ruby. Can she be this person? She has a new hair color, a new ID, and a new attitude. It’s her first time away from her small town in Oregon, and her heart’s still utterly broken after the loss of her husband one year ago. How will she live a new life? How will she laugh? How will she smile? Can she keep her promise to her deceased husband? She doesn’t think so, but her best friend Stephy, the twin sister of her former husband, assures her that she can do anything. She can spread her wings and fly.
We find romance, loss, love, and liberty in this second installment of this exciting new series by Melody Anne. Once we start reading this series, we just can’t put them down.
Charlie Diamond was raised by incredible parents in Prairie Town, Oregon where everyone knows their neighbors and a kid can’t get away with anything. To top that off, her father is the small town’s preacher, making her nearly untouchable. But that doesn’t stop one boy from crossing the line in the sand her father has drawn.
Bentley Lawrence III has also been born and raised in Prairie Town as well. As a matter of fact, he’s from four generations back, and his family owns a huge ranch, and logging land that employees most of the town.
Bentley’s twin sister, Stephanie Lawrence is best friends with Charlie, and somewhere between kindergarten and high school Bentley has fallen madly in love with Charlie. Sometimes, though, love just isn’t enough, not when unbearable tragedy hits when that seems an insufferable possibility.
When Charlie’s world falls out from beneath her, a deathbed promise, and a loving best friend, sends Charlie on a whirlwind to find herself and live the dreams she promised Bentley she’d live.
Come join Charlie as she races around the world to live the dreams of her, Bentley, and Stephanie as she becomes a new person with each new location she comes to until she finds who she was always meant to be.
